English abstract

The majority of librarians at Canadian post-secondary institutions have recently attained faculty status. However, the collective agreements of the faculty associations do not always explicitly state that librarian members participate in all three traditional faculty activities: teaching, scholarship, and service. This study focuses on the membership of the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT), using qualifying member collective agreements and library websites. A qualitative approach is used to build upon the research first reported by Leckie and Brett (1995). Through description, analysis, and interpretation of data, I report that there is a disparity between what the collective agreements state regarding the teaching responsibilities of librarians and what the library websites advertise on behalf of teaching librarians. Three themes of library teaching emerge and two trends for collective agreements regarding post-secondary librarians teaching are considered.
